According to Equasis, 'Emma Maersk' is 170,794 GRT. If accurate, this is far in excess of any figure previously quoted.
Very strange, though, that the next vessel in the series [IMO 9321495] is quoted as being of 'just' 99,000 GRT - another example of Maersk's disinformation ?

Another point - on a ship of this size, why is her name painted in such small characters? The name is almost illegible in just about every photo I've seen.
Yet 'MAERSK LINE' is emblazoned in huge letters amidships.

The LR Fairplay database (www.sea-web.com) have updated their numbers and now also have Emma Mærsk as 170.794 GT and with a whopping deadweight of 156.907 tons.

That would make her about 40 percent bigger in capacity terms than any other containership afloat, if my memory serves me well.

Her LOA is stated to be 398.00 meters, beam 56.4 meters and draught 15.5 meters.

LR Fairplay's database has her sisters L204 (IMO 9321495) and L205 (IMO 9321500) at 157.000 dwt and 170.000 dwt.

Best regards

Since Emma Maersk’s container capacity still seems to be mystery to anyone outside Maersk, I have added a little fun gadget to the www.containership-info.net.tc website: An E-class-TEU-capacity-calculator. It allows you to stow boxes on Emma’s decks and in her holds and it will calculate the ship's actual TEU load according to your stow. It also calculates estimates of vessel turnaround times in port. To access the calculator, just go to the “miscellaneous” section of www.containership-info.net.tc. By the way: We also have some nice photos of the ship online.

Regards

We look forward to seeing pictures of her from Aarhus.

I just checked AIS Live, and she is now proceeding due south at a whopping 26 knots, midway between Sweden and Fredrikshavn, Denmark.

Hello Mats,

Thanks for all the nice info on "Emma Maersk"; all the data and particulars!!!
Very interesting. It would be very nice(but almost impossible...) for a lot of members(maybe yourself?)to be one time on board such a vessel.
They would be impressed by the dimensions; and we- pilots- are thankfull to "work" with these- marvelously fitted - ships.
In my carreer I always liked the scandinavian vessels!!!

thanks again

Yeah, she is a gorgeous ship. I replyed on a picture, saying i was tired of maersk. One guy agreed, one said i, and i quote:
To Ghazten

If beer is boring you, never visit a brewery!

Well, yes, perhaps. What i ment was that i think its sad that they are becoming a giant such as coca cola, macdonalds and the big ones. Perhaps the smaller ones suffer. I like maersk very much myself. I even plan to work for them, when i am through with my school. Now i dont know anymore.
Maersk to me was allways magic. Now i think the macig is getting to big.

Thanks, Geert(Zappa).

You are right - it is not easy to get out there to photograph or visit that many ships with an office job like mine. However, I was a sailor and VHF operator on a naval vessel (HNoMS "Horten") for a year (mandatory military service), and do get to visit ships where we help shipowners take delivery of ships from yards. An important part of our business is casualty handling for Norwegian marine insurers, and we have been handling on-site investigations and legal work on, inter alia, the "Tricolor" and "Rocknes" casualties. The problem with being a lawyer is, of course, that strict confidentiality requirements mean we cannot share the pictures or any information.

Thanks again for your kind words - and I shall continue to contribute the way I can, which is through digging up details on vessels etc.

Have a nice day - and keep posting those great pictures!

Best regards
Mats

It is reported in todays lloyds list that Emma Maersk has performed so well during sea trials that the ship will enter service a week earlier than originally expected.

She is now due to depart from Gothenburg early next month.

Current european port schedule is as follows:

Aarhus      Arr 07 Sep 2006 07:00 Dep 07 Sep 2006 15:00
Gothenburg  Arr 08 Sep 2006 07:00 Dep 08 Sep 2006 23:00  
Bremerhaven Arr 11 Sep 2006 06:00 Dep 11 Sep 2006 22:00  
Rotterdam   Arr 13 Sep 2006 03:00 Dep 13 Sep 2006 15:00

I am visiting Antwerp & Rotterdam from 8th-12th September looks like ill just miss seeing her

Hmm... Someone mentioned that it would be great to get onboard one of these ships! well I work for maersk line and have been sailing on an A-class... And I have to say that even though the size is impressive, it's just like any other container ship (just a little bigger).
